Concrete Reinforced with Polypropylene Fibers Concrete ...

Jun 01, 1983  Polypropylene fibers tend to hold the concrete mix together. This slows the settlement of coarse aggregate and thus reduces the rate of bleeding. A slower rate of bleeding means a slower rate of drying and thus less plastic shrinkage cracking. In hardened concrete, polypropylene fibers act

Concrete reinforced with polypropylene fibers

Concrete reinforced with polypropylene fibers Used as secondary reinforcement, plastic fibers help reduce shrinkage and control cracking Polypropylene fibers are manufactured in small, fibrillated bundles (left). In mixing the concrete, the bundles open up and the individual fibers are sheared apart by the fine and coarse aggregate (right).
